Keeping it Clean: SS Vette's Wicked Widebody

Article and Pictures contributed by Jason Giacchina / Corvette Forum

When it comes to the Corvette, custom looks can range from subtly menacing to downright gaudy. Fortunately companies like SS Vette fall firmly in the former category. As a result, even in this topsy-turvy economy, the company remains strong with an ever-expanding catalog of Vette parts and a presence at this year’s SEMA show.

SEMA 2011: Corsa Introduces New Black Diamond Exhaust Tips for Z06/ZR1 Corvettes

Corsa Performance is one of the leaders in providing Corvette owners with great sounding exhaust systems that provide performance gains without interior drone. But Corvette owners notoriously take pride in the look of their exhaust systems as well and so when we stopped by the Corsa booth at SEMA last week, they enthusiastically introduced us to their newest product – Corsa’s Black Diamond exhaust tips.

SEMA 2011: Ron Fellows and his Hall of Fame Corvette Z06 Tribute

The Corvette Z06 Ron Fellows ‘Hall of Fame’ Tribute was one of two Corvette concepts that General Motors brought with them to SEMA this year. The Red and White Corvette was the featured display at the Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch / Ron Fellows Driving School booth in the adjoining hall. We took many photos of the tribute car and we also have a video of Ron Fellows showing off his personalized special edition Corvette Z06 at Chevrolet’s introduction event held last Monday.

SEMA 2011: Glassworks Corvette Top Lift System

The benefit of having an auxiliary hardtop for your roadster is that you can drive your Corvette longer as the weather turns cooler, thereby extending your driving season for an extra couple of months each year. But putting that hardtop on your Corvette, or removing it when the weather turns nice can be a real struggle. You can call the wife out to the garage, go get a neighbor or attempt to do it yourself, but it only takes one careless move to damage the top or worse, the back of your Corvette. So when we saw the Glassworks Lift System at SEMA, we knew we had to spread the word on this innovative product.

SEMA 2011: The George Barris Bat Ray Corvette

Known to auto enthusiasts worldwide for his outlandish custom car creations for such TV shows as The Munsters, Beverly Hillbillies, Knightrider and most notably, the Batmobile for Batman and Robin, George Barris has recently focused his talents on a another “bat themed” custom design and a 2005 Corvette was his canvas.

[POLL] What's The First Aftermarket Purchase You Would Make for a New Corvette?

As we prepare to head out this afternoon for our trip to SEMA, we thought we’d take a quick poll on aftermarket purchases from our readers. The question has to do with new Corvettes and we’d like to know what your first aftermarket purchase would be. The poll is open to everyone (whether or not you have or will be buying a new Corvette in the near future).

Following the purchase of a new Corvette, what would be your first major aftermarket modification:
